‘Try farm laws for a year or two…’: Rajnath Singh to farmers amid protest
No corporate can snatch away any farmer's land as long as Narendra Modi is Prime Minister of the country, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Friday and asserted that the provision of MSP will continue and mandis will not be shut down. Addressing a gathering in Kishangarh village in the national capital, Shah said if farmer organisations felt that any provision of the three new farm laws is against their interests, the Modi government was ready to discuss and consider the same with an open mind. Shah blamed the Opposition, including Congress, for spreading lies about the minimum support price (MSP) and other provisions of the farm laws. Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday appealed to farmers to try the three new farm laws as an “experiment” for a year or two and in case they are found not beneficial for the farming community, the government will do all necessary amendments. Describing the protesting farmers as his own people, Singh said, “Those who are sitting on dharna are farmers and are born to farmers' families. We have a lot of respect for them.” Watch the full video for more details.
